Democratic Party president, Nobert Mao, survived lynching in Jinja yesterday for abusing Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, who he called Satan and the rest of those nasty slurs.
According to Urban TV, on the eve of the DP delegates’ conference, President Nobert Mao, witnessed exchange of blows and chairs as party members fought at a reconciliation meeting in Jinja.
The members accused him of abusing Lukwago who was endorsed by a splinter group in the party to lead them as president in the Democratic Alliance.
Mao had earlier on threatened to withdraw from the alliance if Luwkago was accepted.
He also said Lukwago was no longer a DP member and had to re-apply to be accepted back into the party.
Meanwhile, at the Jinja reconciliation meeting, Mao apologized to Lukwago over the remarks he made on Tuesday.
Mao said he is ready for reconciliatory talks with Lukwago and his breakaway faction that is threatening to tear apart the party.
Mao said he was angered after Lukwago and DP Buganda faction threatened to break away from the party if the planned delegate’s conference was not postponed.
He had vowed to handle Lukwago with an iron fist.
“I made the remarks against Lukwago due to anger after I saw the way he was heading towards tearing apart DP,” he regretfully put.
